RILEY REF by Oakiel RILEY REF by Oakiel
heyyy just in time to keep up the every-sunday upload spree!! nice
this is riley jones-carter, a character i had to make for crew class. there's this cool subject-wide project where all crew students design an OC to live in the same fictional city, fictropolis, and then there will be events, festivals, weird happenings etc etc that we write about with our characters, involving other students' OCs as we see fit! im super pumped about it so i did some extra art of my bby. below are the facts!


- wants to be a "space photographer"
- wears EXCLUSIVELY his specially-made (bc its so small) bright orange astronaut suit and hates shoes.
- always carries his chunky DSLR camera round his neck. It's so heavy it makes him hunch.
- loves etch-a-sketch but always gets sad because that drawing was a masterpiece and now it's GONE!
- eats fruit loops EVERY morning with minimal amounts of milk.
- has a scar on his left cheek from falling out a window as a little kid, thinking he would float like you do in space. Quickly realized that was not the case. Thankfully, it was only a ground-floor window.
- his parents are super nice but they're very busy during the week so rarely see him. while they're away he spends most of his time at the local babysitter's, but he's such a free spirit she is unable to keep him penned in and he often escapes to visit the city centre.
- riley loves the city centre because it's so big and busy. he loves to people-watch and imagine stories about strangers he sees.
- it's also a really good place to take photographs. he is a talented photographer, it comes naturally to him.
- he really wants one of those cool polaroid cameras. he recognizes that it's impractical to have paper photos rather than digital files, but he wants one nonetheless.
- he keeps snacks in the pockets on the toolbelt of his space suit, in case of emergency.
- he has unusually sticky-out ears but also has big hair to offset it. he's blonde, slightly tan and has some freckles around his nose. green-grey eyes
- he wants to adopt every dog he sees, especially mutts. has a jack russell dog called skipper
- his dad works at nasa and his mum's an archaeologist. somewhere along the way he figured that there are dinosaurs in space
- his sheltered upbringing means he's relentlessly optimistic
- loves theme parks!! especially the big rollercoasters. sadly he's not quite big enough to ride most of them...

u can fave him and read more here! toyhou.se/587114.riley-jones-c…

I really like the way you actually develop rileys character instead of just designing him (which the design is super cute aswell!)

cont: (rip soz this is so long but i have quesTIONS)
did you know that being a space photographer is a legit profession? like theres competitions and stuff.?
what does he draw on the etch a sketch and does he carry that around with him all the time too?
did his dad make his special suit? bc thats adorable. i can imagine him working on his sons Exclusive suit while on his lunch breaks at nasa
finn?
does he like big rollercoasters so much bc it means he's closer to space?
hmm i think i had more. but thats it for now
